RARA-AVIS: Top of the Heap, by ESG

I read TOP OF THE HEAP by Erle Stanley Gardner (1952, as A.A. Fair) and it was fine stuff! This is the first Gardner book I can be sure I've finished--I think I started some Perry Masons when I was a lad, but I don't remember getting to the end. After this, however, and the recommendations I've seen for the Bertha Cool/Donald Lam books (such as this) and the Perry Masons, I'll try more. I think people have said that Perry's sort of hardboiled in the early books.

Does Bertha Cool play more of a role in the other books than in this one? Here she's around at the start and the finish, but mostly it's Lam on his own.
